Geoff Little wins Unsung Hero Award
On 26th June 2013, our very own Geoff Little won the award for Unsung Hero at this year’s North East Accountancy Awards , as a result of his exceptional support towards Whickham School and Sports College.
Whickham School and Sports College commented that “In volunteering his time and expertise as a governor of Whickham School and Sports College, he has helped us to grow and become an extremely successful academy. Geoff has maintained his focus, and his support and commitment has never wavered despite being hospitalised for a period for treatment through his battle with cancer. As Chair of our Audit Committee he brings a clarity and understanding that is invaluable in challenging and supporting our finance team and auditors. Geoff is a great example to others who would like to make a difference through supporting schools and communities.”
Geoff commented “I was actually lost for words that I had been nominated and then won (anybody that knows me will know I am seldom lost for words). I have just been grateful to the support of my family during my battle with the Big C and the team at Bell Anderson for keeping things going. As for volunteering I am only too glad to help the school as a governor and help with the local community”
